I used KnitPicks Bare Merino Wool Sock Yarn. It is 440 yds and 100g/hank. You could make a shoulder shawl, scarf, or thin wrap out of it.

I didn't use anything to hold down my wool It was just in the water in the crockpot and I poured the Kool-Aid on top. This looks like it wouldn't be right - having the Kool-Aid just sit on top of the water on top of the hank - but it eventually absorbs into the yarn. No stirring or moving the yarn required.
